Quick Reference (5)

Resource type Addition and subtraction
Fractions involving symbols occur frequently. It is necessary to be able to add and subtract them. On this leaflet, we revise how these processes are carried out. An understanding of writing fractions in equivalent forms is necessary.
Resource type Fractions
This leaflet reminds students how to express a fraction in its simplest form, and how to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions. (Engineering Maths First Aid Kit 1.1)
Resource type Fractions
The ability to work confidently with fractions, both number fractions and algebraic fractions, is an essential skill which underpins all other algebraic processes. In this leaflet, we remind you how number fractions are simplified, added, subtracted, multiplied and divided.
Resource type Multiplication And Division
Fractions involving symbols occur frequently. It is necessary to be able to multiply and divide them. On this leaflet we revise how these processes are carried out.
Resource type Simplifying fractions
This leaflet explains how algebraic fractions can be simplified by cancelling common factors. (Engineering Maths First Aid Kit 2.7)

Staff Resources (1)

Resource type Maths EG Teacher Interface
The teacher interface for Maths EG which may be used for computer-aided assessment of maths, stats and numeracy from GCSE to undergraduate level 2. These resources have been made available under a Creative Common licence by Martin Greenhow and Abdulrahman Kamavi, Brunel University. Teachers need to register (top right of screen) and thereafter login to use the system, after which they may use it to compose their own tests by selecting (specifically or randomly) questions from the entire database of questions. Instructions are available from the title page.

Teach Yourself (3)

Resource type Fractions - adding and subtracting
In this unit we shall see how to add and subtract fractions. We shall also see how to add and subtract mixed fractions by turning them into improper fractions.
Resource type Fractions - basic ideas
What are fractions? Fractions are ways of writing parts of whole numbers. For example if we take a pizza, and divide it up equally between 4 people, each person will have 1/4 or, written in words, one quarter of the pizza.
Resource type Fractions - multiplying and dividing
In this unit we shall see how to multiply fractions. We shall also see how to divide fractions by turning the second fraction upside down.

Third Party Resources (1)

Resource type biomathtutor
biomathtutor presents students with a filmed bioscience-based scenario and guides them through some of the mathematics they need to understand and grow confident and competent in using routinely. The case-study scenario, covering practical aspects of haematology and microbiology, is presented via a narrated film, 24 min in length, but divided up into short sections. The film tracks the diagnosis and treatment of a student with anaemia and a throat infection and links the clinical findings and diagnoses to 33 interactive questions and relevant maths tutorials. An additional 24 interactive questions cover the same range of basic mathematical concepts presented in similar biological contexts, with a view to reinforcing students' learning. biomathtutor was developed by Vicki Tariq (University of Central Lancashire), John Heritage and Tom Roper (University of Leeds), Andrew Bond (University of Westminster), Mike Tribe (University of Sussex) and the EBS Trust. It was funded by HEFCE through its National Teaching Fellowship Scheme.
